Historic Common Law Court Prosecution concludes its Case against Canada, its churches and the Vatican
A Global Media Release and Advisory from The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State
“A final and lasting justice is owed to the dead and the living victims of the world’s least-known and never-prosecuted Genocide” declares ICLCJ Prosecutor
Brussels (ITCCS Central):
Canada’s first independent judicial proceeding concluded its Prosecution’s case today against the institutions responsible for the death of more than 50,000 aboriginal children.
The International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ) commenced a case on November 6, 2012 against Canada and its churches for crimes against humanity in the Indian residential school system. Today, the Prosectutor’s Office of the Court posted its complete case containing 150 exhibits and other evidence proving that Canadian church and state are guilty of intentional genocide and a criminal conspiracy against indigenous children.
The Prosecution has named and subpoenaed as defendants Pope Benedict and the Vatican, the Crown and Queen of England, the Prime Minister of Canada and fiduciary officers of the Catholic, Anglican and United churches.
“Our aim is nothing less than the disestablishment of the institutions responsible for the worst Genocide in human history: the planned extermination of indigenous nations and their children on this continent” summarized ICLCJ advisor to the Prosecutor’s Office, Kevin Annett Eagle Strong Voice today.
In his summation, Annett called on the Court’s fifty eight sworn Citizen Jurors to bring in a guilty verdict against the defendants and a sentence of no less than twenty five years in prison for them and the forfeiture of their wealth.
The Prosecution also demanded the seizure of the property and assets of the named churches “as part of true reparations”, and the legal dis-establishment of the same churches.
“International law does not suffer genocidal organizations to enjoy tax exemptions, privileges and legal protection, and actually encourages citizens to shun such bodies. This Court can do no less, since we stand on the Nuremberg standards and the Rome Statute” said Annett.
The ICLCJ has given the thirty two subpoenaed defendants seven days to present their defence, or face a decision in absentia. If the defendants fail to respond, the Citizen Jurors will retire to render their verdict on the evidence.
Meanwhile, both aboriginal and non-native supporters of the Court are planning direct actions to implement the verdict, including by withholding tax payments to the government of Canada and occupying and seizing churches responsible for the deaths of native children.
One such Canadian tax-withholder, Andrew Paterson, will be interviewed on on the Court’s new global blog radio program, “We the Jury: A Forum without Borders”, which commences this Saturday, February 2 at 4 pm EST, 9 pm GMT, at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/wethejury .
